Hi,

Great work on MenuetOS! Quite amazing.

I tried it just now in VMWare Fusion on my Mac using the latest 64-bit download and VM setup files from this page: https://communities-gbot.vmware.com/message/1232212#1232212

The problem with this method is that you can't save CONFIG.MNT settings. Not sure of the exact reason why that is.

Anyway, I live in the UK and use British UK keyboard but I was unable to find a keyboard layout that worked well in my testing. English is mostly correct, but still some keys were wrong (brackets were above 8 & 9 rather than 9 & 0, for example).

I managed to run kbgmap using command/terminal and found that US-en was closer to my layout but still not 100% correct.

On macOS my layout is "British (PC)" as follows:

Best of luck with V2.0!

Thank you for the information! I'll update the English keyboard map to next release. If the virtual machine doesnt support floppy operations, then one way to modify the disk-image is in Windows with WinImage. Probably a similar application exists for Mac. I'd also recommend trying M64 with VirtualBox.

Perhaps VFD for Windows or GNU Mtools for *nix?
